Jenny Green on Arandic Verbal Art Wed, 2013-11-20 19:18
Dr. Jennifer Green from the University of Melbourne, Australia, talks about her ELDP funded documentation project on Arandic verbal art from Central Australia. Samples of this project titled “Narrative art: multimodal documentation of speech, song, sign, drawing and gesture in Arandic storytelling traditions from Central Australia”, can be viewed at the Endangered Languages ARchive (ELAR) web catalogue: http://elar.soas.ac.uk/deposit/0270. The project explores notions of creation and use of sand drawings and sign languages by older Arandic women, as a means of communication.
